Hey, Tuesday! Interrupting fairy deadlines with a bit of news: I'm excited and honored to be included in this cheery collection of contemporary watercolorists. The book is beautifully designed and includes some of my esteemed favorites like Becca Statdlander, Sujean Rim, what company! Watercolor hits stores in April. Thanks to the fine folks at Chronicle, and author/curator Leslie Ann Dutcher.
Have a beautiful week, folks!

It's that time of year again. New York Fashion week has electrified September. Characters play out their stories on the runway. COUTURE and CREATOR come together in powerful narratives...
Ah, I can't help but be inspired by the quick blips of it I see in flickers on the internet. Shape, line, movement, story. I wonder what era she is staring from?

Last month, I finished a commission for local Boston stylist, Noelani Zervas, and her blog Mon Petit Chou Chou (it means "my little cabbage" and serves as a french term of endearment.)
We met in french class (oui!) both prepping for our upcoming trips to Paris. Lani's energy and flare for style was apparent even on those sleepy classroom mornings in Cambridge (managing to always have her miniature espresso cup and saucer, hair spun into effortless bun). After trading homework notes, and visiting her blog, Lani commissioned some fashion paintings.
Paintings were finished in Dr. Ph Martins radiant watercolor, colored pencil, and crayon. (Click on images to enlarge).
Bostonians will spy the "Pru" peeking in the window (standing in for the La Tour Eiffel, bien sûr!) Lani also has an art history background and a passion for her Skinner auctions, so I tucked an antique frame behind her shopping bags.
For her web design, Lani called on a stellar local designer and branding company, the talented Jessica Sutton of JSGD. It was delightful to collaborate with these ladies on a fresh look!
Merci mille fois. X
